Artist's Description

THIS MORNING, SEPT 17 2009, WHEN I OPENED UP MY BUBBLE SITE, I NOTICED SOME COMMENTS FROM EDWARD DENYER, AKA TED, ABOUT SEVERAL OF MY IMAGES. WELL, AS ALWAYS, WHENEVER SOMEONE LOOKS INTO MY GALLERY AND ARE NICE ENOUGH TO COMPLIMENT OR COMMENT ON MY IMAGES, I GO TO THEIR SITE AND CHECK OUT THEIR WORKS. SO, AS I WAS STROLING THROUGH TEDS GALLERY, I SAW THIS IMAGE OF THREE VERY CUTE LITTLE CORGI PUPPIES. AS SOON AS I SAW THAT SHOT, I SAID TO MYSELF, I SAID SELF, YOU NEED TO PUT UP THE PHOTO OF MY THREE WOLF HYBRID PUPPIES THAT WERE BORN UNDER MY BED. SINCE I CONSIDER MY FAMILY PETS TO BE MY KIDS, IF ONE OF MY FEMALES HAS PUPS BY ONE OF MY MALES, THEN THAT WOULD MAKE THEIR PUPPIES “MY THREE GRANDKIDS”. THE MIX OF THESE PUPPIES IS 85% ARCTIC/TUNDRA, 7% GERMAN SHEPHERD AND 8% MALAMUTE. WHEN THEY WERE WHELPED FROM THEIR MOTHER, I NEVER HEARD ONE SINGLE SOUND OUT OF MY 75% ARCTIC FEMALE. REMEMBER, I SAID EARLIER, THEY WERE BORN UNDER MY BED AND I WAS LAYING ON THE BED AT THE TIME. IT WAS SO AMAZING TO HOLD IN MY HANDS A 20 MINUTE OLD PUPPY. I ALLOWED DEGOEE TO CLEAN EACH PUP BEFORE I TRIED TO PICK ANY OF THEM UP. THE FIRST BORN MALE, TACOMA, WAS SOLD BEFORE HE WAS EVER CONCEIVED, THE SECOND BORN MALE WAS SOLD TO AN AIRFORCE CAPTAIN. SHE BROUGHT HIM BACK ONE WEEK LATER, SHE HAD BEEN TRANSFERED TO GERMANY AND SHE COULDN’T TAKE HIM WITH HER. SO, I KEPT HIM AND NAMED HIM SMOKEY FOUR SOCKS. I WAS SO GLAD TO SEE HIM WHEN SHE BROUGHT HIM BACK TO ME. HE WAS MY FAVORITE AND I SO WANTED TO KEEP HIM ANYWAY AND NOT SELL HIM. THE THIRD PUP TO BE BORN WAS A LITTLE FEMALE AND SHE HAD A RATHER ROUGH START IN HER HUMANS HOUSEHOLED. SHE WAS STARVED FOR ATTENTION BY HER OWNERS AND WHEN THEY MOVED INTO A HOUSE ON A STREET BEHIND ME, I CAN SEE THEIR DRIVEWAY FROM MY BACKYARD, SUDDENLY I SAW A RATHER BEAUTIFUL WOLF HYBRID WALKING DOWN THE SIDEWALK IN FRONT OF MY HOUSE. I FIGURED IT WAS HER, JUST FROM HER LOOK WHEN I LAST SAW HER AT THE AGE OF 8 MONTHS OLD. WHEN I CALLED TO HER, SHE TUCKED HER TAIL AND KEPT GOING. THE NEXT DAY, I SAW HER AGAIN IN FRONT OF MY HOUSE. BY THIS TIME SHE WAS 1 1/2 YEARS OLD. THIS TIME WHEN I CALLED TO HER, SHE RECOGNIZED MY VOICE AND KIND OF SAID TO HERSELF, I REMEMBER THAT HUMAN FOR SOME REASON, AND THIS TIME SHE CAME TO ME. IT TOOK HER HUMANS 4 1/2 HOURS TO COME AROUND THE BLOCK TO GET THEIR WOLF HYBRID. WELL, THREE TIMES LATER, I ENDED UP CALLING THE ASPCA AND HAVING THEM PICK HER UP AT MY HOUSE IN VACAVILLE CALIFORNIA AND TAKING HER BACK TO HER HOUSE. WHEN THE ASPCA TOOK HER THEIR, THEY TOLD HIM TO KEEP HER. I WANTED TO SHOOT THAT SON OF A BIT#@. IF I HAD KNOWN THEY WERE GOING TO GIVE HER UP, I HAD A HOME ALL PICKED OUT FOR HER. SO, I NEVER KNEW THE LIFE OF SASHA MARIE AFTER THAT. I DID SEE A MAN ON THE OTHER SIDE OF TOWN, WALKING A VERY SMALL CHIHUAHUA AND A LARGE WOLF LOOKING DOG THAT COULD HAVE FIT SASH’S DISCRIPTION. I CAN ONLY HOPE THAT SHE GOT TO LIVE A LONG AND HAPPY LIFE WITH SOMEONE WHO APPRECIATED AND TOOK CARE OF HER. THE ORDER OF THESE THREE ARE, TACOMA ON THE LEFT, SMOKEY FOUR SOCKS, ON THE RIGHT AND SASHA MARIE IN THE MIDDLE. THEY ARE LOOKING AT THEIR FATHER, WHO IS LAYING ON THE FLOOR IN FRONT OF ME. I PUSHED EVOLUTION THE DAY THOSE PUPS WERE BORN. NORMALLY THE FATHER OF THE PUPS, WON’T SEE THE PUPS FOR ABOUT THREE MONTHS OUT IN THE WILD. FOURS SOCKS, GOT TO SEE HIS NEW OFFSPRING THE NIGHT THEY WERE BORN AND HE GOT TO PLAY WITH THEM ABOUT ONE MONTH LATER. IT TOOK THAT LONG FOR THEM TO REALLY GET MOTIVATED TO DO MORE THAN STAY IN THE PEN WITH MOM. I SURE DO MISS THE SOUND OF TWO ADULT WOLF HYBRIDS AND THREE PUPPY WOLF HYBRIDS, SCAMPERING THROUGH THE HOUSE ON THE WAY OUT TO THE BACK YARD. OUR HOUSE IS UP OFF THE GROUND, SO IT MADE LOTS OF NOISE AS THEY WENT THROUGH FROM MY BEDROOM DOWN THE HALL THROUGH THE DINNING ROOM PAST THE KITCHEN AND THROUGH THE DEN TO THE BACK YARD. ONCE THEY GOT MORE ADJILITY AND COORDINATION, THEY REALLY STARTED PLAYING WITH EACH OTHER AND THEIR PARENTS. I SURE DO MISS THEM. I WISH PUPPIES COULD STAY PUPPY SIZED FOR AT LEAST 6 MONTHS TO A YEAR. THEY ARE SO CLUMBSEY AND CUTE AT THOSE STAGES OF THEIR LIVES. THESE PUPPIES WERE BORN ON JANUARY 22 1996. THEIR PARENTS ARE GONE NOW AS ARE THEY. TACOMA LIVED THE LONGEST AND PAST LAST APRIL AT THE AGE OF13 YEARS 2 MONTHS. SMOKEY FOUR SOCKS, MY KID, PASSED AT 13 DAYS SHORT OF HIS 8TH BIRTHDAY ON JANUARY 9, 2004. HE HAD A TUMOR ON HIS HEART AND IT BURST HIS AORATA. I WAS SO DISTROUT, I HAD TO GO SEE A MENTAL HEALTH THERAPIST FOR ALMOST A FULL YEAR. LIKE I SAID, I’M NOT SURE WHAT HAPPENED TO SASHA MARIE. MY PACK OF 5 WOLF HYBRIDS DIDN’T LAST LONG, AND MY PACK OF THREE DIDN’T LAST AS LONG AS I WAS HOPING FOR, BUT I THANK GOD FOR ALLOWING ME TO SHARE MY LIFE WITH HIS CREATIONS FOR AS LONG AS I HAD WITH THEM. SO, AFTER HAVING 4 DIFFERENT HYBRIDS, INCLUDING MY FIRST ONE IN 1977, I’VE HAD 48 ACCUMULATIVE YEARS EXPERIENCE WITH SUCH LOVING CREATURES. WELL, TODAY IS MY MOM’S 80’TH BIRTHDAY AND I PROMISED HER I WOULD FIX HER STEAK AND KING CRAB LEGS FOR HER DINNER. SHE JUST WALKED IN AND ASKED ME WHEN I WAS GOING TO FIX THE STEAKS, I’M OFF TO THE CHARCOAL GRILL.
